Women’s hoops coaches find creative ways to fill schedules

(AP)- Louisville women’s basketball coach Jeff Walz knows it’s likely games will be scrapped at the last minute this season because of the coronavirus. So he set up a group text with fellow coaches at about a dozen schools within driving distance. The idea is, if a game gets canceled late, they have a quick way to find out if someone else can play instead. If that seems chaotic and haphazard, welcome to the 2020-21 college basketball season. With a week until tipoff, some teams have no more than a handful of games scheduled and others are lining up bus rides and home-and-home series like they’re in baseball’s minor leagues.
